The death yesterday morning at Tweed Heads of Mrs. Lucy Whittaker, relict of the late Mr John Whittaker removes another of the links with the past in the history of the Tweed and Northern Rivers. The names of the late Mr and Mrs Whittaker, who, although they lived in the Tweed district for a number of years, will be familiar to all those who remember the Clunes district in the early— the “big scrub days”.

Mr. Whittaker purchased property there many years-ago, going to Clunes from the South Coast. After living at Clunes for a while, he went Western Australia and worked in the mines, leaving his wife and family to carry on at Clunes. After leaving Clunes the family took up residence first, at Murwillumbah, and later at Tweed Head. Mr. Whittaker pre-deceased his wife, dying at Tweed Heads on May 30, 1929 shortly after he celebrated his 90th birthday. Soon after, Mrs. Whittaker Ieft the family, which was situated on the main Chinderah-Tweed Heads road, in the vicinity of the golf links, and went to reside in Tweed Heads.

Mrs Whittaker formerly was Miss Lucy Fowler, of Tullambah, Illawarra her husband being born in Cheshire and coming to Australia when he was two, years of age. Whilst living in the Clunes district, it was no uncommon thing for Mrs. Whittaker's able services to be requisitioned as a bush nurse and on many occasions she crossed swollen creeks on horseback, ( side-saddle), to attend cases, and. was reputed never to have lost a life.

Mr. and Mrs. Whittaker had ten children, seven of them alive today:- George Whittaker (Sydney), James Whittaker (Iluka), Fred C. Whittaker ( Lagoon Grass, Lismore ), Walter Whittaker (Dorrigo) , Herbert Whittaker (unmarried, Tweed, Heads), Mrs H. Dorrough ( Bilambil ), Mrs. W. P. Yager (Ewingsdale). One son, William, was killed in Western Australia: anothers. Alfred, died of fever when working in the Great Boulder mine, Kalgoorlie: a daughter Mrs. H., Williams, died in Murwillumbah about 24 years ago, her two days' old baby (now Miss Ella Williams) being reared by her grandmother, Mrs Whittaker, with whom she always has resided.

Although the deceased lady was in her 89th year she was ill only for days before her, death. Following service at St. Cuthbert's Church of England, Tweed Heads, the funeral took place at Tweed Heads cemetery yesterday afternoon, and was largely attended. Rev. W. Hopwood Eyans, Rector, offciated. The pall-bearers were Messrs, Herbert Whittaker (son), T . Fowler, (brother) , W.P. Yager (son-in-law), D. F. and.H. Dorrough (grandsons), the other chief mourners being Mr. Fred Whittaker (son ), Mesdames Dorrough and Yager (daughters) and Miss Ella Williams (grandaughter).

Mrs. Whittaker leaves seven children, 26 grandchildren, and 16 great-grand- children. Tweed Daily (Murwillumbah, NSW : 1914 - 1949) Monday 27 February 1933 p 2

Death of Mrs John Whitty

The death occurred last evening at her residence, Raymond Terrace road, of Mrs, Whitty, wife of Mr. John Whitty, senior warder at the Maitland Gaol.

She leaves no family. Much sympathy will be felt with the bereaved husband. The Maitland Daily Mercury (NSW : 1894 - 1939) Tuesday 25 January 1916 p 4

BRIEFLY in a previous issue, the death was announced, on May 22, of Eleanora, widow of the late Henry Whittingham, at her residence “Arakoon,” Holts Avenue, Mosman. On Wednesday she was laid to rest at Kiama beside her husband, in the Porter's Garden cemetery. A number of friends followed to the grave where the impressive service of the Church of England was conducted by the Rector, Rev. T. V. Alkin. Mr. And Mrs. Whittingham spent many years in Kiama, where they made a large circle of friends, and where Mr. Whittingham took a keen and active interest in local affairs, and was manager of the E.S. &A. Bank.

Mrs. Whittingham had a charming and dainty personality, and the capacity for making lifelong friends, and she was specially beloved in her home circle-a devoted mother, very, very dear to her children, to whom her unexpected death came as a great shock and severe blow. On the evening the end came she retired seemingly in her usual health, and, in bright spirits, happy in the thought of a visit from her daughter (Miss C. Whittingham, matron of the Kiama Hospital) next day, and much sympathy was felt throughout the district for Miss Whittingham, who has won her way into-the hearts of the Kiama people, in the great shock she sustained in finding a home of silence and sorrow, instead of the happy one she expected to find.

For several years Mrs. Whittingham has lived in Mosman, happy in the care of her children, Mr. D. Whittingham and Miss Whittingham, and in little home duties and the pleasure of her garden, in which she took a keen interest in her great love of flowers. Mrs. Whittingham was in her 77th year, and was the daughter of the late Thomas Florence (Govt. Surveyor of New Zealand) and a granddaughter of the late Rev, Thos. Kendall, one of the two first Church of England clergymen who went to New Zealand, the Rev. Samuel Marsden being the other. To mourn their irreparable loss Mrs. Whittingham has left, beside her son (Mr. D. Whittingham), her daughters-Mrs. Pinney, Mrs. A.J. Colley, Mrs. H. Bruce and Mrs. Bosgard, and Misses A. E. R. and C. Whittingham–and a large circle of friends and acquaintances.

Though her greatest sphere of usefulness was in her home and the influence she exerted in refinement, intellectuality, and the home spirit and atmosphere, she leaves a memory in the hearts of those that loved her-truly a desirable tribute to possess by any woman for the worth of her work in the world, and “To live in the hearts of those that love us, is not to die”

Nora Teresa Whyms (formerly Burke) v George Dennis Whyms. Marriage, October 6, 1898, at Dunmore. Issue, desertion.

Petitioner stated in evidence that her husband, who was a dairy farmer at Kangaroo Valley at the time of the marriage, was cruel to her after the first child was born, and used to kick her, punch her, and drag her around by the hair, and chased her with an axe on many occasions. She left him in 1914 and went to Crookwell and Binalong, where, while working as a housemaid and waitress, she became friendly with a man with whom she went to live in 1920. He died in 1931. She had not had the means to take proceedings for divorce before, but she wanted to “get free.”

His Honor : It is 25 years since you left your husband, and you do not know whether he is alive or dead, and yet you want to get free ?
Petitioner : Yes.
His Honor : It is an extraordinary business.
Petitioner : I have worked hard to get the money for the divorce.
His Honor : I cannot see any possibility of hardship if you do not get a divorce, and I cannot see what benefit there would be if you did get it. I will think the matter over.

Ship: 1816 Mary Ann

Husband resident at Bellambi in 1841 Census on the late Colonel Leahy’s land. He arrived in 1814 as a convict . He was assigned to her after her arrival. He was a farm labourer.

Patrick Burke was indicted for a highway robbery on the person of George Figly and Ann Widgett, putting them in bodily fear, and taking from them several articles of property, to the value of £5 10s., on the 25th of March last.

George Figly-I am a farmer, residing at Illawarra ; I was travelling with Mrs. Widgett to Sydney ; when near Appin, while passing a thick scrub, a man came out and stopped us ; the prisoner at the bar is the man; I know him well, having known him before at Liverpool ; be levelled his piece at me, and said, “ drop that bundle, or I'll knock your b-d-y brains out ;” I did drop it, and attempted to walk on; he sung out again, 'drop that jacket too, or I'll fire;“ I gave it to him, and proceeded on my journey with Mrs. Widgett; he halloed again that if we looked back he would settle us.

Cross-examined by the prisoner — I had seen you before in Liverpool, but don t know how many years since; I am sure you are the same man.

Ann Widgett corroborated the evidence of the last witness.

Cross-examined by prisoner - I did tell Corporal Lane, when I saw you in custody, that I knew nothing about you ; I did so because I did not wish to explain myself then.

William Lane — I apprehended the prisoner on the 18th last month ; I went, in company with two others, into the bush about eighteen miles from Mittagong. When we arrived at the spot, I crept up to the hut, and heard two persons talking; I then went to the door; he instantly presented this gun at me, and I sung out, ” Burke, if you don't surrender, I'll shoot you !“ He presented the piece again close to my cheek ; I knocked it aside and, after a struggle disarmed and secured him.

Cross-examined by the prisoner — Mrs. Widgett said, in my hearing, that she knew nothing about you, and did not remember your person as the man who robbed her.

The learned Judge recapitulated the evidence to the Jury at some length, and they, without hesitation, found the prisoner guilty.

The same prisoner was again indicted for a highway robbery on…

There was no other evidence in this case, and the Jury returned a verdict of guilty ; after which the Chief Justice, in a very impressive manner, passed the awful sentence of death on the prisoner, who seemed quite unmoved.

When it became known that Mrs. Margaret Wiley, of Peakhurst, one-time resident of Mt. Keira and Corrimal, had passed away in the Kogarah Hospital, much genuine sympathy was felt, as the late Mrs. Wiley was a wonderful neighbour and friend, and many Mt. Keira residents recall her acts of kindness in times of sickness and sorrow. To help lighten someone's burden seemed to give her joy. Much sympathy is being extended to the relatives who are left to mourn the loss of a wonderful mother and sister, they being: Sidney (Sydney), James (Manly), Roy (Corrimal), sons; Mrs. Baker (Corrimal), Mrs. Roberts (Katoomba) and Ted Shipton (Hunter's Hill), sisters and brother. The body was laid to rest in the Methodist portion of the Wollongong cemetery, and the many beautiful wreaths bore testimony to the esteem in which, deceased was held.

A pathetic story of a woman's hard struggle for existence was told at the City Coroner's Court yesterday in the course of an inquest on the body of Raymond Exell Wilkinson, aged 12 years, a newsboy, of Bulwarra-road,

Ultimo, who was killed through being knocked down by a motor lorry while alighting from a tram In Pyrmont, on December 19.

Annie Matilda Wilkinson, mother of deceased, told the Court that tho child was one of her seven children. She received no support from her husband, who had left her, and for whose arrest a warrant had been taken out. Deceased, who was her fourth eldest child, was her main support, and along with another of her children sold papers to help them to live. Continuing, she stated that she got no help from the State Children's Relief Department. Her eldest child was a cripple.

A verdict of accidental death was returned. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Tuesday 31 December 1918 p 7

Mrs. Louisa Wilkinson, of Mort-street, who died in Lithgow hospital early this morning at the age of 56 years, was a keen supporter of St. Patrick's Church.

Born at Dapto, she came to Lithgow with her husband, Mr. William Joseph Wilkinson, a railway employee, 19 years ago. Mr. Wilkinson, a son, William Joseph, of Mort-street, and a daughter, Mrs. Mary McCoola, of Gympie, survive.

The late Mrs. Wilkinson had been in indifferent health for the past six months. She entered the hospital on Saturday, suffering from a heart affection. Of a happy disposition, Mrs. Wilkinson had a host of friends, who will extend deep sympathy to the husband and family.

The funeral has been set down for to-morrow afternoon, interment to be made in the Catholic portion of Bowenfels cemetery after a service in St. Patrick's Church. Lithgow Mercury (NSW : 1898 - 1954) Monday 19 June 1939 Page 2

Henry Carter stood indicted for having, on the 20th April last, at Wollongong, violently assaulted one Mary Ann Fishlock, and committed a rape upon her person. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. Mr. Windeyer appeared on his behalf. The prosecutrix, a girl seventeen years of age, stated that tho prisoner came to her master's house on the day named in the indictment, (which was a Sunday,) in the afternoon; her master and mistress had both gone out; tho prisoner, after having ascertained from witness that she was alone, effected his purpose in spite of all the resistance she could offer. She shortly after gave her mistress warning, left her situation, and went home; but did not name the circumstance to anyone till a month afterwards, stating as a reason for such omission, that the prisoner had so threatened her, she was afraid to tell anyone what had occurred. The father of the prosecutrix corroborated the latter part of the girl's statement, as to her leaving her place, and the subsequent disclosure. Mr. Windeyer addressed the Jury at some length, and said he should be able to produce witnesses to prove, amongst other facts in behalf of the prisoner, that so far from any violence having been used, the meeting on the Sunday afternoon was of the girl's own appointment. His Honor said that, from facts connected with the evidence already heard, he presumed it would not be necessary to go further into the case.

The Jury were unanimously of the same opinion, and acquitted the prisoner, who was immediately discharged. The Sydney Morning Herald 7 July 1845

Many in the district were sorry to learn the sad news of the death of Mrs. Ann Williams, which took place at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. W. A. Walmsley, “Hill View,” Eltham on March 10th, at the ripe old age of 92 years. A feeling of sadness inevitably comes as the fine old people, the grand pioneers, pass to the other side; men and women who have faced life bravely and well, and whose life work has helped to make Australia what it is. For sometime past the deceased lady had been suffering from heart trouble, and despite the untiring attention of her family she passed peacefully away on the date named. Mrs. Williams was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Grey, and born on January 12th, 1826, county Fermanagh (Ireland).

When 25 years of age she came to Australia, and married William Williams, who pre-deceased her twelve years ago. They acquired land in the Kiama district, which was then in its natural state, and made a home, where they resided for 50 years, and then came to the Richmond River. Mrs. Williams was of a kindly disposition, and the early settlers of the South Coast will remember her home and hospitality, also her attention in cases of sickness. She was one of the fine old type of gentlewomen, rarely seen now, of distinguished presence and much natural intelligence. Always a loyal and sincere friend she thoroughly deserved the respect and esteem in which she was held, and, although her life was an exemplary one, her sufferings, which for the past three mouths were very keen, she bore with Christian fortitude, and was greatly helped by the love and affection of her family. The Rev. F. Eveleigh, vicar of the parish, and Rev. D. D. McIlwraith, attende her through her illness.

The members of the family left to mourn their loss are:—Mrs. J. J. Henry, (Foxground, South Coast), Mrs. W. A. Walmsley (Eltham), Mrs. H. G. Bailey (Eureka), Mr. W. Williams (Gundurimba), and Mr. Geo. Williams (Nimbin). She also leaves 15 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. Her remains were enclosed in a polished cedar coffin, heavily silver mounted, and were laid beside her late husband in the Anglican portion of Clunes Cemetery.

Romantic Suicide.
(From the Evening News.)

The City Coroner held an inquest on Saturday' morning, at the London Tavern, Elizabeth-street, on the body of Catherine Williams, who died on Thursday night from the effects of poison. From the evidence it appeared that deceased was born on March 25, 1865, at Kiama, New South Wales, She was a domestic servant, and at the time of her death she was in the employ of Mrs. Page, at 240, Elizabeth-street. She had been living there only a week. Before the deceased went to Mrs. Page's, she lived at Arditto's hotel, at the corner of Pitt and Campbell-streets, for about three months. Her mother, Catherine Williams, residing at the corner of Kent and Bathurst-streets, saw deceased alive on last Wednesday night. She was then the same as usual. There was nothing strange about her. She did not complain of anything, nor was she excited. Deceased occupied a bedroom together with Ann Butler, aged twelve years. Soon after eleven o'clock on Thursday night, on Ann Butler entering the room for the purpose of going to bed, she saw the deceased standing by the dressing-table. The little girl sat down on the bed when deceased turned her back. She then asked deceased what was the matter with her. Deceased replied, ” Nothing at all,“ and sat down on the floor. After a few minutes Ann Butler asked deceased why she had taken a card from Eva. Deceased replied, ” Oh, I don't want it, I will not be alive to see the show.“ Ann Butler then further questioned deceased what she had been doing to herself, but received no reply. Deceased then rose from the floor, and went to her bed and undressed herself. Deceased then came back to Ann Butler's bed, and said (putting her finger to her tongue and then withdrawing it), ” Taste my finger, what a nasty bitter taste it has.“ After that deceased said, ” I got stabbed over at the park gate. Don't say anything at all about it.“ After this conversation deceased went into her own bed, and put out the light. Shortly after deceased said, ‘ For God's sake go and tell Mrs. Page I am dying.” Ann Butler at once went to Mrs. Page, and delivered deceased's message. Mrs. Page came into the bedroom. Deceased appeared to be in great agony. Mrs. Page exclaimed, “ Good G-.what have you been doing to yourself ?” Deceased replied, “ I have taken poison: fetch a doctor.” Mrs. Page inquired of deceased where she had obtained the poison. Deceased replied, “ I bought last night two shillings worth.” In reply to further questions, deceased pointed to a box under the bed. Mrs. Page then opened the box, and on searching it she found a glass with a red sediment in it. Deceased called for water, and commenced screaming. She clenched her hands, and went into convulsions. Dr. Atherton was sent for, but life was extinct three-quarters of an hour before his arrival. The following letter was found in the deceased's box, and was recognised as being in her handwriting :

Sydney, January 23,1880. Miss O'Brien, Agricultural Hotel.

Dearest Mary,-It seems so long since I saw you set that it nearly broke my heart. When I saw you and James last night you did not think that it would be the last night you would see me alive. I have fallen out with Johnny, and he is the cause of all this. I loved him dearly, and was always true to him, but he proved false to me. Never mind, I hope the next young lady he has now, he will not desire her like he desired me. I was sorry I wished him bad luck. God alone knows how I love him ; no one else does. May God bless and keep him from harm, for when I am in heaven I shall pray for my dearest Johnny, as I said, when we parted on Tuesday night, that it would be the last time on earth that we should see each other.

Dearest Mary.-Do not grieve for me, for we all must part some day. And oh, dear Mary, when you pray forgive. I know you shall remember that there is a God on high, and pities still. My last words when said to you last night, and my last when spoken to Alick on Tuesday night. I remain your best and loving friend, Cate Williams. P.S.-I hope you will not forget me, Mary, and come to my last remains and put me down in the grave. So goodbye, Mary, in this world, till we may meet in heaven, Oh, dearest Mary, goodbye, in a very short time I part from this earth. Face to face we shall meet in heaven. I say good bye to Mrs Dollar, I say goodbye to Mrs Powell, and to my mother and both sisters, With best love and kisses to you all, dear friends, goodbye all-Catherine Williams,

Another piece of paper, which was enclosed in the letter, contained the following lines :

Katey to Mary. My love for thee can never fade,
In spite of change in thee ;
And vows that we together made
Can ne'er be broke by me.

The body was viewed this morning. It was that of a splendidly developed young woman, and of superior good looks. She had a mark on her body. It was stated that she was one of the girls who had been stabbed last, year.

The inquest ,was adjourned till Thursday next, to enable Mr. Watt to examine the contents of the stomach. The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser Tuesday 27 January 1880

Robert Williams, a middle-aged man, who is a free-selector at Bamarang, was placed upon his trial on a charge of committing a rape on his daughter, Maria Williams, 17 years of age, at Bamarang, near Nowra, on the 11th November last. The prisoner pleaded not guilty, and was defended by Mr. Buchanan, instructed by Mr. A. M. Castle. The jury found the prisoner not guilty, and he was discharged.

[By Telegraph.] Sydney, November 25.

A brutal wife murder was committed last night at Nowra. At about 7.30 p.m. Robert Williams presented himself at the police-station and stated that he had murdered his wife and demanded to be locked up. On the police proceeding to Williams' house they found Mrs. Williams lying dead across the hearth with three dreadful wounds in her head and a heavy iron bar lying beside her. So far as can be gathered the murdered woman had been ironing clothes when her husband approached from behind and felled her to the ground, and then battered her about the head where she lay. No one else was in the house at the time. After committing the deed Williams went outside and kissed his children, who were playing about, and then proceeded to the police station and gave himself up. The primary cause of the crime is ascribed to jealousy, for which there is every reason to believe there was not the slightest foundation. The couple had lived very unhappily together for a long time, and the deceased had taken legal proceedings against her husband, having put her case into the hands of a solicitor yesterday. On hearing of this it is believed Williams became maddened, and in a fit of rage and jealousy committed the murder. Deceased was a hard working, honest woman, and well connected. She leaves a family of eight, some of whom are grown up. Williams treats the matter very coolly. He says his wife drove him to commit the deed. The Advertiser (Adelaide, SA : 1889 - 1931) Thursday 26 November 1891

Robert Williams was charged with having murdered, his wife, Christiana .Williams, at Nowra, on November 24 last. , Mr. Colonna Close, instructed by Mr. C. Bull, appeared on behalf of prisoner.

The facts of the case, as set forth for the prosecution, were that the prisoner and his wife had been married for a long time, and they had had 12 children, five of whom were living with their parents at the time of the occurrence. They had been living in Nowra for about nine months, and the wife was the mainstay of the family, earning her living by washing, the prisoner doing nothing, further than assisting, her about the-house and drawing water for washing. For many years the prisoner seemed to have had a fixed idea in his mind that his wife was guilty of gross immorality. This idea, was quite without foundation as his wife was a respectable; hard-working woman. He annoyed her so much by these charges, that on the day previous to the crime she said she would go and consult a solicitor and see if she could not get something done. On the following day, the 24th, she went to a solicitor, and, on returning, told her husband., He wanted to know, what she intended to do. She replied that he would find out soon enough. About 7 o'clock in the evening the eldest girl went out, leaving the young children at home with the wife, who was ironing some clothes. Shortly after the eldest girl went out, the prisoner told the other children to go and play outside. They went out leaving the prisoner and his wife alone in the house. A little while after he came out of the house, kissed the children, said good-bye to them and walked away. The second eldest girl went into the house and found her mother lying dead on the floor with some wounds on the head from which blood was flowing. Assistance was summoned, and the prisoner was subsequently found sitting on the steps of the police station. ; He said, :**. I have come to give myself up; -I have murdered my wife.“

The Crown Prosecutor said the only question for the jury to consider was whether the “prisoner's mind was in such a state as to render him entitled to be acquitted on the ground of insanity.

Dr. O'Connor, gaol surgeon, deposed to having had the prisoner under medical observation. After careful examination, he found the prisoner was suffering from hallucinations of hearing and sight. He believed that a man was constantly in the room with him, carrying an American axe on his shoulder. He also believed he heard voices during the night which kept him awake. He had a fixed idea about the immorality of his wife. Be thought the prisoner had been acting tinder the influence of these hallucinations when he murdered his wife.

A number, of other witnesses were called for the prosecution.

The prisoner, when asked if he had any statement to make, mumbled out that he had no witnesses, and he ”. wouldn't bother about it.” ?

. His Honor, in summing up, said the case was a very Bad one. There was no doubt that the accused killed his wife, and it -was for the jury to say whether they felt justified in finding a verdict of not guilty on the ground of insanity, which was the only verdict asked for on behalf of the prisoner. His Honor proceeded to review the evidence at length, especially with reference to it a bearing on the question of the prisoner's sanity. .

The jury, after 25 minutes deliberation, returned a verdict of guilty with a recommendation to mercy on the ground of prisoner's insanity on the subject of his wife's conduct

When asked if he had 'anything' to say to show why sentence of death should not be passed on him prisoner said he forgave all those who had made false and wicked statements against him during the trial.

His Honor, in passing sentence, said the prisoner had been convicted of one of the most terrible crimes of which, a man could be found guilty, for he had taken , the life of a woman whom' he had years ago promised, to love; honour, and protect; The jury had recommended him to mercy on the grounds of hallucination ; but he could not entertain that recommendation, though, others might. There was no doubt that the prisoner would never have committed that horrible deed had it not been for his hideous suspicion against his wife; but the jury had- very properly found that the prisoner in committing the murder was aware that he was breaking the law. Under the circumstances the Governor might take into consideration the recommendation of the jury. He could, however, hold out no hope. It seemed to him that it would be misery to the prisoner to prolong his life ; but every man seemed to hang ‘to' life, and for that reason he thought the death sentence a valuable deterrent. He had now a solemn duty to perform., He asked the prisoner to prepare for death, for he could not pass any other sentence. Sentence of death was then passed in the customary form, and the prisoner was removed from the dock. Northern Star (Lismore, NSW : 1876 - 1954) Saturday 12 December 1891

Susannah Clarke’s parents Thomas and Elizabeth were both transported convicts eventually becoming free settlers in the Lake George district where they took up land holdings in Currawang NSW. Today the Currawang Valley is a quiet and sparsely populated rolling hilled area that sits comfortably between the small townships of Collector to the west and Tarago to the east. It is therefore just south of Goulburn and enjoys magnificent long views across Lake George whose northern most shore lines now boast the massive white structures of a growing number of mighty wind powered generators standing like sentinels watching the rise and fall of the lake water level.

Elizabeth Clarke came to Australia with midwifery skills and she subsequently passed these skills onto those of her daughters with the aptitude for this work. Particularly gifted was Sussanah. Midwifery was an important competency and one that was greatly appreciated and sought out by the women of the colony in the absence of established hospitals. All births away from the main population centre, which at that time in New South Wales was Sydney, were at home.

Currawang was Sussanahs home where she lived and grew up under the roof of her emancipated convict come settler parents. The Clarkes ran sheep, grew produce and were handy with horses. This was a prosperous development as Currawang became a staging station for coaches that were bustling along to the south or alternatively returning the other way. Elizabeth by now acted as midwife for many home births in the Lake George and Collector districts.

At this time work gangs of convicts hard laboured making and repairing what was the Sothern Road. Braidwood had now become the southern most extremity of the colony. Large land holdings were being given to soldiers who had served in the Napoleonic Wars and to ensure success, convict labour was being also assigned to them to clear and work their land.

This was the known colonial frontier in those early days with inland travel either by foot or horse. Rail was well away from arriving in the district. Roads were rough hand cut tracks at best with every storm quickly gouging out potholes and swollen creeks cutting away the convicts hard work of building roads. The Hume Highway, then called The Great Southern Road, was no more than a roughly formed bullock track with its tottering bridges, rugged climbing hills and treacherous passes. It was used by coaches as there was no other way to go.

Immigrants were on the move in large numbers. Every week new ships were arriving in Sydney with more who were intent on moving into the inland seeking to make a home away from England, Scotland or Ireland. Most were after gold but some, the stayers like the Clarkes were farmers. Till now home ownership for them had been a dream.

In order to move, people needed both food and water and places to rest from their exhaustive travels. Inns provided such stop over places. The Goulburn area and beyond, originally inhabited by the Ngunnawal People, was opening up to European expansion and rural activity. Where abundant and reliable water was found, towns were being built. Shops, schools and churches were being erected. All were attempts to recreate what it was like ‘back home.’ Australia the new southern land was being turned into a model of British value and worth. The First Australians were given no land, no rights and more poignantly, no chance. Land ownership has always been power. Without land there can be no material comfort in Australia.

Thomas Lawler who would marry Sussanah Clarke was 12 years her senior. His father had previously been transported to Australia as a convict aboard the William Jardine which arrived in Australia in 1841. At home in Ireland young Tom was now becoming too much of a handful for his mother. Exasperated she packed him off to Australia to join his convict father when he was just 16 years old. Tom had become a law unto him self and was destined for trouble because if he wanted it, he took it. Trouble would come to him soon enough. But trouble of his kind always hurts others particularly their immediate family who are not immune to the repercussions of their actions.

It had begun early going back in Ireland when his own mother packed him up to join his convict father in Australia, probably with a good riddance and don’t come back message. The common term used was that he was a ‘remittance man.’ The meaning being, go away and try and make something of yourself in Australia, because it’s just not going to happen here!

Ireland had become too small for his mother and he to live on the same island together and there was a bigger and much further island somewhere down there at the bottom of the world. Conveniently the government even helped with the resettlement costs. “Bon Voyage Thomas my son. Don’t forget to write”

A deeply troubled young man he was, but some women seem to love bad men, especially big brutes who can handle themselves and sit well on a horse. Women like what they see but seem to think they can somehow change them. It was at Currawang that Thomas Lawler first saw the lovely, young and impressionable Sussanah Clarke. Tom here used his natural charm to woe her and his horse management skills to woe her parents where his talents were greatly appreciated at this staging area for the busy coach travel of the day. Sussanah and the Irishman Thomas Lawler were married in July of the year of 1857 and later in the same year Sussanah gave birth to the first of their children.

Gold was being found around Braidwood and Cooma and often he was away after it. Thomas Lawler now began to associate with criminals, more particularly bushrangers. On the odd occasions when Thomas was home and not involved in any kind of shonky deal, he and Susannah fought. Sussanah’s father Thomas Clarke by now had discovered significant deposits of tin upon his land in Currawang and this subsequently led to the area rapidly expanding to become a boom mining town as news of the strike spread. He did not profit markedly, electing instead to sell his land with its mining rights. He died of Dropsy in 1863.

Once when Thomas was at home consider the fate of being a traveller like a couple of hawkers who made the mistake of parking their fully loaded goods wagon too near to Thomas Lawler’s house. They were trying to sell goods to the miners who were working the nearby mine. When the travellers came out of the tavern, they discovered that all of their goods were plundered and their horses had been stolen. That was in 1865. Thomas was suspected, but no actual proof could be produced. The locals as well as the constabulary were beginning to realise that this tear away who married the local girl of Clarke from Currawang was a wrong un. This was deeply shameful on both her and her family as it was reported in the papers with the inference that Thomas was the thief.

To make matters worse, the next year Thomas was arrested for aiding bushrangers. Not just ordinary bushrangers, these were amongst the worst and most cold blooded bushrangers in Australian history, the notorious Clarke Gang.

The police sergeant who arrested Thomas on this occasion claimed that he was riding with the Clarkes who were being hotly pursued by a police party. As they got close to them, one of the gang was shot and killed but the other 3 got away. The police tried to prove that Thomas was one of those who had got away. However a witness produced by Thomas said that he was with him all that day and night at a pub in Queanbeyan. Thomas got off. Magistrates at this time were said to be sympathetic to the Clarke Gang and more than likely were themselves fearful of cold blooded reprisals.

The Clarke Gang were eventually captured the next year and hanged. They had previously been credited with killing at least 5 police. They robbed dozens of coaches and shops in their short but violent career. Once a police group were after them and they were able to reverse the situation and ambush the police. In this ambush they killed two police and the other 2 surrendered to them. But the Clarke Gang had no sympathy for them at all and murdered them in cold blood. The villains then pinned a pound note on one policeman’s body as a warning to others who might be interested in their $5,000 reward.

Consider the type of men they were when on one occasion one of their gang was wounded by the pursuing police, they then coolly shot him through the head so that he could not give away their various hideouts.

Amid all of this, Thomas now fought with Susannah about religion. He, bastion of virtue, thought it essential for his children to be properly educated in a Catholic convent school. Certainly it had done wonders for him! Susannah disagreed.

She refused to have any more of her children taken away to be educated in the convent in Goulburn. Tensions flared between her and Thomas. Susannah thankfully still had her own family as with Thomas’s wild ways, they never left the family safety. This helped her on those frequent times when Thomas was lately being locked up in gaol or prior to that off stealing horses, getting tangled up with bushrangers or generally drunk. Life was hard for the Lawler family but Thomas was about to make it much, much harder.

He was arrested in 1867 charged with horse stealing. This time despite the many lies he told at court, he was found guilty and given three years hard labour in Berrima Gaol.

Susannah had by now had quite enough of Thomas, unlike his mother previously, she never had to pack him off as the court obliged and did that for her.

She was still relatively young. She had young children and no means of support with Thomas being gaoled and being a midwife, did not pay the bills. As luck would have it, she now met a Welsh miner called William Williams. Same deal as with Thomas, she fell for the big broad shoulders and easy smile. Caught up in the new opportunity she grabbed it and William with both hands and got out of Currawang as quickly as she could.

They made their way to Goulburn initially and then to Wollongong around where coal mines were beginning to open up. With a name like Williams and coming from Wales this was no surprise. Coal mining being of course William’s calling and birthright. It was exactly what he had done back in Wales. The hard rock mining at Currawang seeking tin and copper was not at all to his liking. Best leave it to the Cornishmen.

Of Thomas, well on his release from Berrima, he was arrested again and given more hard labour. He was now a known criminal and probably beyond all redemption. Friends were few as his card was now marked. With the Clarkes now hung, the entire network of fear and intimidation that they had established now dissolved. His wife and family life had disintegrated on him by his own actions. He now had the hard look of a criminal and his good looks that he had for so long traded on, were now broken by firstly hard liquor and now by hard labour. Then in 1872 he was again arrested, this time he was given 5 years hard labour for larceny.

Thomas had by now become a product of his own wrong doing. He had been found out to be a habitual criminal. It is not possible that he was Charlotte’s father or any children below her for he was in gaol when they were conceived.

Till being first gaoled, Thomas had been able to lie his way out of his crimes and had been able to produce others who would lie convincingly for him. Not anymore, for now that he was a convicted criminal he no longer could do this. Like all wrong doers the only friends he would now ever have had a ball and chain attached to their legs as they crushed rock to make bush roads. Their conditions were horrid and they were treated no better than animals. The British criminal system was a harsh unforgiving one.

Susannah however took Thomas’s incarceration as an opportunity to get away from this evil man. She escaped and made a new life in Goulburn with her a new partner William Williams. Every mother then desperately needed a man to stand by her and be strong for her children. William became that man.

She now remained a midwife to women in the area her name S. Williams appearing from this time forth upon numerous birth certificates.

Henry the youngest son born to Sussanah claimed on later documentation that his mother had married William in 1865 at Goulburn but it was more likely that William and Sussanah began to live together in a de-facto relationship in 1867 which is coincides with when Thomas Lawler was first gaoled and when in all likelihood, William met Sussanah and they made their getaway to Goulburn and then with Thomas Lawler’s impending release, they went down to Wollongong.

William Williams became their father and in 1877 after a new baby, Elizabeth joined them, Sussanah began to show early signs of breast cancer. The family were living in Bulli as William had began to work the gassy and dangerous Bulli coal mine. It was a time of trouble and William was a White Leg. This meant he was as a married man allowed to work the pit but that the Lodge had black banned it because of an ongoing dispute. Single unauthorised men in that pit were called Black Legs or scabs.

Life was of course hard, but with regular work came regular wages. Susannah at last knew some relief from looking over her shoulder, or wondering if the police would come pounding on her door looking for her husband. Her children were near her and life was a lot better than it had been. The disgrace of being married to a member of the Clarke Gang was now far behind her.

Her eldest daughter Catherine had married a man called Charles Lloyd in Goulburn in 1874 and she also came down to Wollongong with husband. She would give birth to 12 children, 3 in Wollongong and the rest down in Moruya. She never named any of her 6 sons after her villainous father Thomas.

Susannah now contracted full blown breast cancer and she died early in 1878. On her death certificate were named her 10 surviving children now aged from 20 being Catherine and a mother of 3 herself down to the youngest, Elizabeth who was now 8 months old.

Sussanah would not be there to see her husband William blown to pieces in the Bulli Mine Disaster of 1887 or prevent the youngest of her children being adopted and living hard, those days were still to come. But she had ensured that many children were safely delivered and comforted during bush home births. However and more importantly she had ignited a strong spark in her daughter Charlotte to go on and learn the life saving skills of being a midwife in the harsh pioneer world that was the Bulli District on the 1880s and beyond, ensuring that other local midwives, would train Charlotte to attain her necessary life giving skills of midwifery. Life may have ended prematurely for Sussanah as she was only 39 when she died but she had certainly been part of interesting times in the formation of Australia’s story.

The farm had become a small village with 84 people in 21 slab houses, some were free, others were convicts.
13.1.1842 - Governor Gipps ratified the promised grant of 1818. It was bequeathed to William and Elizabeth Weston’s daughters, Elizabeth and Augusta.
pre 1842 - the first section of the house was built, four rooms and central hall.
1843 - Elizabeth married Andrew Thompson and Horsley became their home.

Geoffrey Robinson says that Elizabeth was a servant in the Weston household when she became pregnant to William Weston, unusually he married her and the family decided to pack the couple off the colonies. Therefore, because she was a ‘working class’ girl, when William Weston died she was not ashamed to marry a convict as she was not of the same social strata as her husband.

One of Cessnock's oldest residents, Mrs. Jessie Willis, of High Street, Ccssnock, died in the hospital on Saturday evening, after a short illness.

The funeral took place in the Presbyterian Sectionn. of the Cessnock cemetery,on Sunday afternoon, the officiating clergyman being the Rev. McEvoy.

She was predeceased by her husband, Mr. Joe Willis, who was also a very well known identity of Cessnock.

The deceased lady was born at Emerald Hill, Victoria, 74 years ago, and was married in Sydney in 1891. Her husband was born in South Australia.

After their arrival In Cessnock, Joe Willis was one of the first men employed at Aberdare colliery, and took part in the bricking up of the shaft.

All the five sons served In the fighting forces In the first and second world wars. One. son, William, was killed in action in France in 1917.

At the funeral en Sunday, the four sons, Edward (Brisbane), Robert (Lithgow), Gordon (Newcastle), John (Jock), of Cessnock), and Mrs. Lloyd (daughter, of Lithgow) were all able to be present.

There was a large crowd of sympathisers and friends present at the graveside to pay tribute to a very fine and popular old resident.

Up to within a fortnight of her death. Mrs. Willis could be seen making her way to her Wednesday afternoon recreation at the Empire Theatre, and it came as a shock to her host of friends that her death was so near.

She was closely associated with the Unwin family,- who had extended the greatest kindness to her during the years that her family, through war, and calls to other industrial areas, were away from her.

The members of the family were high in their eulogisra of the splendid treatment of their mother by the nursing staff of the Cessnock Hospital, and will return to their various centres full of praise for these splendid women.

The death of Annie Jane, wife of Mr. John Wills, occurred at their home, “Woodville Park.” Nowra, early on Saturday morning last, at the advanced age of 72 years. The cause of her death was heart trouble, but although her health was very indifferent for some time past was little thought that her end would have mine so suddenly. Her illness was no doubt, to a great extent, attributable to the anxiety caused by the fact of her husband and son (Harry) hearing the clarion call of duty when the Empire, together with her Allies, needed men to fight, the grim battle of warfare for several years past, the last named not yet having returned home. Indeed it will now be a sad home-coming for her hero son. The deepest, sympathy is felt for the family in their darkest hours of trouble.

The late Mrs. Wills was the daughter of the late Mr. John Francis, of Brogher's Creek, a well-known and highly respected family, of the district.

The interment took place in the Nowra public cemetery on Sunday last, when a large circle of friends attended to pay , their last tribute of respect. The Nowra Leader (NSW : 1909 - 1939) Friday 3 October 1919 p 4

A wedding which created a good deal of local interest took place at St. Michael's Church, Wollongong, on December 18, when Miss Alice Maud Mary, second daughter of Mr. T. C. Bode, of the Royal Victoria Hotel, was united to Mr. James Wilson, second son of Mr. W. Wilson, manager of the South Bulli Colliery. The church was crowded, with spectators and friends of the contracting parties, who showed great interest in the proceedings. The officiating clergyman was the Rev. T. C. Ewing. The bride wore a travelling costume of bronze corded silk, with trimmings to match, and was accompanied by Miss Bode as chief bridesmaid, together with Misses Minnie, Emily, Matilda, and Frederica Bode, and Misses Cissy Anderson and E. Wilson (a sister of the bridegroom); while two little brothers of the bride acted as pages. The dresses of the bridesmaids were of white cashmere and corded silk trimmed with Valenoionnes lace, and white nun's veiling and lace. The groom was attended by Mr. W. Manning, of Sydney. At the conclusion of the ritual the “ Wedding March ” was played by Mr. Crone; and the procession from the church to the residence of the bride's father was accompanied by the town band.

A recherch’e dejeuner was served in a pleasant arbor at the rear of the Royal Victoria Hotel, when over 100 guests sat down. The tables were furnished in a prodigal manner. ; and during the course of the dinner the band discoursed appropriate solutions of music. The chair was occupied by Alderman Lahiff, of North Illawarra (the acting Mayor of Wollongong), Mr. Cochrane filling the vice-chair. Several happy speeches were indulged in, and toasts honored; and then the happy pair left for Bathurst, amid the hearty good wishes of their friends.

WILSON—At Fairy Meadow, on the 18th instant, BARBARA, relict of the late Mr. ALEXANDER WILSON, Renfrewshire, Scotland, and mother of Messrs. JAMES WILSON (Sherbrooke) and JOHN WILSON (Fairy Meadow); aged 80 years. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 22 July 1890 p 2

On Sunday afternoon the remains of a worthy lady that had reached the good old age of four score years were laid in the Presbyterian burial ground, Woonona.

We allude to Mrs. Wilson, mother of Mr. James Wilson, of Sherbrooke, and of Mr. John Wilson, of Fairy Meadow. Since her arrival in the colony, about sixteen years ago, she lived mostly with the former gentleman and his family. Within the last few weeks she was on a visit to her son at Fairy Meadow, and becoming ill there, her vital powers succumbed, and she passed quietly away on Friday evening. She was much beloved by all her relations, and deservedly esteemed by all others who know her. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 22 July 1890 p 2

She also carried a beautiful shower bouquet.

There was only one bridesmaid, Miss Emily Wynn, sister of the bride, who looked charming, dressed in white Indian muslin, trimmed with lace and insertion, with hat to match. She also carried a bouquet, and wore a very handsome gold brooch, the gift of the bridegroom. Mr. Ernest Wynn was best man. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the church organist, Mr J. Crowther. played the Wadding March. The breakfast was confined to a few family relatives, and the usual toasts were honored. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson left by the 4 o'clock train for Sydney, en route for Liverpool, amid the congratulations and well wishes of a number of friends, and showers of rice and confetti.

The bride wore a blue flaked voile travelling dress, and looked very nice. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Saturday 8 October 1904 Page 2

A feeling of deep regret pervaded Kiama on Saturday afternoon, when it was heard that Mrs. David Wilson, without illness, had suddenly passed away from heart failure. Up to a few days previous to her death Mrs. Wilson appeared quite in her usual health.

On Saturday afternoon, as the day had been an “oppressive one, she felt she would like to-rest awhile, and went to her room, where she was followed by her daughters, who found, to their grief and shock, that she had gone from them. Mrs. Wilson was sincerely beloved by her children and large circle of friends, and highly respected throughout the district, in which she has resided for a good many years. Of a quiet and refined disposition, and a consistent and regular church attendant, she was greatly esteemed as a member of the Presbyterian Church, where her place was seldom vacant when the Sunday came, and where her gentle spirit and kindly word and smile will be sadly missed, as it will by all with whom she came in contact. Her greatest sphere of usefulness was in the home, as a loving and devoted mother, and deepest sympathy is felt for Miss Wilson and Mrs. Neale (her daughters) and for the Messrs J., A., G., F. and H. Wilson in the loss they have sustained. Mrs. Wilson was 68 years of ago, and the relict of Mr. David H. Wilson. Her maiden name was Miss Georgina Collie, and she was the daughter of the late Mr. John Collie, of Wollongong. She was married by Dr. Kelynack, and then came to Kiama to live shortly afterwards. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, and was a large and representative one. The many beautiful wreaths and floral tributes were an evidence of the affection and esteem in which Mrs. Wilson was held; a beautiful one was sent by the Kiama band, of which Mr. Harry Wilson is a member. A short service was held atthe house, and at the graveside in a moving address Rev. Thos. Alexander made feeling reference to the beautiful character of the one they had laid to rest, and to the suddenness of the call from earth to the Home Beyond.

By special license, at Gerringong, on the 8th instant, Robert, eldest son of Mr. James Wilson, of Gerringong, to Miss Anne Muldoon, native of the County of Fermanagh, Ireland. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 10 February 1865 p 2


On Monday morning there passed away a resident of many long years standing in Gerringong, and esteemed and respected the length of them in Mrs. Jane Wilson, the relict of the late Alderman Robert Wilson, for many years Mayor, and a member of the Gerringong Council since its inception, until shortly before his death some years ago.

Mrs. Wilson had proved herself a kindly neighbour and true friend in the neighbourhood in which she lived for over 60 years, and in her home was a devoted wife and mother, and consequently will be deeply mourned by her children. She was a sister of the late Mrs. Weir who predeceased her but a few weeks ago. During her short illness, she was devotedly nursed by her daughters, Mrs. A. Blow, Mrs. J. Weir and Mrs. E. Glenn. A native of county Fermanagah, Ireland, she came with her sister, the late Mrs. Weir of Gerringong, to the colony some 61 years ago, as a girl, and very shortly after came to reside in Gerringong, where she has spent a life-time. A consistent member of the Church of England, and a great church worker, she was laid to rest beside her partner of many years in the Church of England portion of the Gerringong cemetery on Tuesday afternoon, the, Rev. A. Reeves officiating assisted by the Rev. W. Nuttall. Beside the daughters already mentioned, three sons in Messrs. John J. Wilson, R. H. Wilson and J. S. Wilson survive to regret the loss of a dearly loved mother. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Wednesday 1 May 1918 p 2

An application was made to the Chief Judge in Equity on Monday on behalf of Lilian Wilson (administratrix of the estate of William Wilson, deceased), Bellambi, for a declaration that her late husband was a half-owner with the defendant (Thomas Saywell) in the Zig-zag Colliery, near Lithgow. The defence was that the arrangement made between the defendant and the late William Wilson was that the latter should manage the mine and look after the defendant's interests, and for his salary should take a half-share in the net profits of the colliery. After hearing evidence his Honor said that the account given by Mr. Saywell, was, to his mind, reasonable. An order was made dismissing the suit, but without costs, as the defendant stated that he did not wish for costs, the plaintiff having ten children to support.

Two years have passed away, dear wife,
But your face will never fade,
For I love you still as dearly
Though you're in your silent grave.
Mother is gone, but not forgotten,
Never shall her memory fade,
Sweetest thoughts shall ever linger
Around the grave where she is laid.

A fond, dear mother, a faithful friend ;

As years roll on we love you still.
There is a grave not far away
Where our dear mother sleeps,
Who seemed alive but yesterday
How fresh her memory keeps.

Silent the voices we loved to hear
So far away from sight or speech ;

Quickly forgotten by some you may be,
If others forget you never will we.

An enquiry into the cause of death of the late John Wilson, of Gerringong, was held at the late residence of the deceased on Monday last, before the District Coroner, H. Connell, Esq., and the following jury:…

Margaret Wilson, widow of deceased, deposed: On Saturday last her husband was in his usual state of health–in good spirits, and ate his meals as usual ; between five and six o'clock he walked with Mr. McKenzie on to the road, and she never saw him alive again, as half-an-hour after they went she heard some one calling; and going about 200 yards on the road she saw her husband lying on the ground dead; she was greatly affected, knowing he was dead from his appearance, and had very little recollection of what took place at the time; some twelve months ago Dr. Tarrant treated deceased for heart disease ; but he recovered, and had taken no medicine since; deceased, who was 72 years old, was a native of Ireland, and had been in the colony 23 years, his occupation being that of a farmer; he leaves six children, all grown up.

John McKenzie, farmer, of Broughton Vale, deposed: He had known deceased for a number of years; and about five o'clock on Saturday last called to see him, when he said he was in very good health, and appeared so; after chatting with him on the verandah for half-an-hour, they observed an old man, a tramp, in the adjoining paddock about to light a fire, and they went to the man, when deceased said he would not have a fire made there, as it was too windy, but he (the old man) could come up to his house, boil his water, and have his tea there; the old man thanked him, and was gathering up his traps, when deceased made an attempt to catch hold of the fence; his walking-stick fell out of his hand, and he appeared to be falling side ways; he (witness) caught hold of him, and, after supporting him for a short time, laid him down gently on the ground, when he gave a deep sigh, and died without speaking further; he was not angry, or in the least excited, and showed no sign of weakness till he tried to catch hold of the fence; this took place about three or four hundred yards from the residence of deceased, on the public road, about six o'clock in the even- ing; he immediately cooeyed to the family, and Mrs. Wilson and four children came, and the body was shortly afterwards removed to his late residence.

James Kelly, labourer, deposed; He had, been in the colony for forty years, but never had any fixed place of abode; he was going to boil a billy of water, when deceased and another gentleman came up to him ; deceased forbad him to make a fire there, as he had some hay not far off, and it might, being windy, be set on fire; he said he would put him in the lock-up if he made the fire; at the same time he invited him to his place to boil the billy and have his tea: he did not say this angrily, but appeared kind, and he (witness thanked him; he then appeared to be falling ; Mr. Mc'Kenzie tried to support him ; then laid him on the ground, but he never spoke again; the friends of deceased came down from the house, when they heard the cooey-ing, and took the body away; he (witness) camped out that night, and proceeded to the Berry estate next day.'

Dr. Tarrant was called, and deposed he had made an external examination of the body; which was much decomposed; but it presented no mark of, violence; some months ago he attended deceased, who suffered from an attack of syncope, caused by attenuated dilatation of the heart; he then advised deceased to avoid all excitement, and informed his friends that he was suffering from heart disease, and would probably die suddenly; from the evidence he had heard, and his previous knowledge of deceased, he considered he died from syncope.

After a brief review of the evidence by the coroner, the jury found that the deceased, John Wilson, came to his death on the 1st December, at Gerringong, from natural causes. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Friday 7 December 1877 p 2

ON Thursday, the 12th instant, there was a gloom cast upon this place such as I never before experienced, caused by the death and burial of two of its oldest residents. The first was Mrs. Wilson, relict of the late John Wilson of Crooked River, who after an extended and somewhat painful illness, passed away as it were in a sleep at 8.30 on the morning of the 11th instant, the immediate cause of death being, I believe, inflammation of the lungs. During her sojourn of upwards of thirty years here she was an affectionate mother, a good neighbour, and an inoffensive, unassuming personage to all with whom she came in contact. She was born in the county Tyrone, Ireland, which place she left for this country not long before the time I have already mentioned, and died at the ripe age of 67 years, leaving a family of three sons and three daughters all grown up and in good positions. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Friday 20 July 1883 p 2

OUITU.tty.-It is only six weeks since the late Mrs. Wilson, of Crooked River, died of extended inflammation of ploeurisy, a notice of which appeared in this journal.

Since then her daughter, Margaret Wilson, aged 32 years, died on the 4th instant, and subequently on the 6th instant her son, George Wilson, aged 38 years, died of same disease. Both daughter and son were born in County Fermanagh, Ireland, they both came to the colony with their parents thirty years ago, and have spent the greater portion of the time in this diatrict. They were of unblemished character, and one, if not both, was connected with the C. E. Sunday school, Gerringona. The Rev. J. Done officiated at the graves of both, and will, we hear, preach a funeral sermon at Gerringong on Sunday next, The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Friday 14 September 1883 p 2

IT is our sad duty to record the death (briefly announced in last issue) of an old and very highly respected resident of the district, in the person of Mrs. Mary Ann Wilson; wife of Mr. Robert Wilson, of Fountaindale, Jamberoo, which took place at her residence on Thursday last, in her 67th year. The deceased lady was born in the county Fermanagh, Ireland, in the year 1837, and was married in 1857, and left Ireland one year later with her husband and two (twin) children for new South Wales. - Shortly after their arrival, about 45 years ago, they settled in the Illawarra district, taking up land about Saddleback, and have ever since been resident in this district. It appears that some two and a half years ago Mrs. Wilson was stricken down with paralysis, from which she in a way recovered, and although since being affected-with cerebral haemorrhage, did not really show any evident effects of same until Tuesday afternoon last, when, while assisting in the milking yard, she suddenly complained of violent pains in the head.

She was assisted to the house, and medical aid summoned, but in spite of all that kindness and tender nursing could do, she expired as stated, on Thursday morning, all her children, with exception of Mrs. Spinks (Bodalla) and Mrs. Lumsden (K. Valley) being present at the bedside. The deceased lady was of a very genial and kind-hearted disposition, and being loved by all with whom she came in contact, will be much missed by her family and relatives, also by her large circle of friends. She had it family of ten children in all, by two of whom she was pre-deceased, leaving a husband (Mr. Robert Wilson), four sons (Messrs. Andrew and Oliver of Cambewarra, John of Kangaroo Valley, and William of Fountaindale), four daughters (Mrs; J. F. Spinks of Bodalla, Mrs. J. Noble of Jamberoo, Mrs. W. McClelland, jnr. of Cambewarra, and Mrs. W. Lumsden of Kangaroo Valley), 24 grand-children and two great-grand-children to mourn their loss. The funeral, which was largely representative of the most prominent and influential residents of the district, took place on Saturday, the remains being interred in the Church of England portion of the Jamberoo cemetery, the Rev. T. S. Willis officiating at the graveside. Many of our readers will join with us in expressing sincere sympathy for the husband and family in their sad bereavement, The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Tuesday 17 November 1903 p 2

He left his house on Monday morning to go to his usual work (fencing) which he had been at for the last two months, and returned about one or two o'clock, complaining of a pain in his chest. He remained at home till Tuesday morning. He then started to go to his work, although not well. I knew no more of him till Thursday night, when I was told by Mrs. M'Clelland that my husband was no more. I was going to where he had died, but met the cart with his body coming to Jamberoo. Two of my sons and my daughter were with the cart. He was brought to Curry's Hotel, where he now lies.

OBITUARY.-An old and greatly esteemed resident of this township departed this life on Monday, 25th of August last, namely, Sarah, relict of the late Robert Wilson, of this Borough, who, as your readers will recollect, died some three years ago. Mrs. Wilson's death may be attributed to decay of nature, as she was in her 70th year I but it was greatly accelerated by chronic asthmna, which no medical aid could permanently relieve during the last four years of her existence. She, however, bore her painful affliction with Christian patience. She was born in Somerset, England, on the first day of January, in the great historical year 1815. She was the mother of only one child, the late Mrs, Joseph Dunster, whose death took place about three years ago, and whose Christian virtues are a memorial to her worth. The funeral of the late Mrs. Wilson took place on the Wednesday following her death, and a large concourse of friends and neighbours joined the procession, in token of their deep respect for the deceased lady.. She was nterred in the Shellharbour burial ground, and the funeral service was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Colvin, C. E.. Clergyman, of Jamberoo,and when this was completed he delivered a solemn and impressive address on the shortness of life, the certainty of death, and the necessity of being prepared for the final summons. The writer had the pleasure of an acquaintance with the deceased as a neighbour and friend, and knew her thorough christian character for nearly thirty years. Her charity, kindness of heart, and hospitality appeared to know no bounds; night or day, summer or winter, to rich or to poor, her bounty and care was dispersed alike with a prodigality, welcome, and style peculiar to herself, and these traits of her admirable character will long be remembered by the people of Shellharbour. For many years she was in the habit of giving a birthday party or picnic, on which-occasion many friends, sometimes forty or fifty would congregate, the old folks, after being regaled, to enjoy the old fashioned chat, and the young folks to gambol on the green. In business (for Mrs. Wilson kept a store upwards of twenty years) she was all that honest people could desire; from a needle to an anchor she kept herself well supplied ; and her business habits, and generous disposition, endeared her alike to the poor and well-to-do settlers, Her Christian virtue were of no mean order, and her hope was founded on the Rock of Ages. Her charity and liberality, as well as that of her late husband, to the churches were magnificient, and, though she hailed as an Episcopalian, she was at times a worshipper and helper in each of the Protestant churches. God's people were her people ; their home her home, and, as her end drew near, she could, looking beyond this vale of tears, say, ” There is my house, my portion fair ; My treasure and my home is there,“ etc.

EXCESSIVE DRINKING. — Harriet Wind complained that her husband, William Wind, by the excessive drinking of spirituous liquor was likely to impoverish himself, injure his health, and bring his family to want— Defendant : I don't drink liquor. — The P.M. : Beer, I suppose — Defendant : Yes ; I take a drop of beer — about a pint a day. It takes that to keep a man working in the mines at my age. — Mr. Crothers : I am as old as you, I think, and I don't need beer. — Defendant : Do you work in a mine? — Mr. Crothers : No. — Defendant : Well, that's the difference ; a man who works in a mine needs a little beer. — Harriet Wind gave evidence of her husband's drinking habits. He was all right when sober, but when he had drink in him there were complaints of his conduct, and the little children, when he came home, were glad to get away from him. Since the hotel had opened at East Greta, he had been worse. — Defendant said he never drank more than a pint of beer a day. He. had only two ' bob' to spend in drink during the past fortnight. He did not believe in drinking, because a couple of drinks a day were sufficient for him at his time of life, — An order was made against defendant for twelve mouths.

SOME three years ago my wife, Charlotte Windley left her home and three children at Ulladulla, with my concurrence, to see her sister at Melbourne.

Three months afterwards I remitted her some money at her request. Two years after leaving I sent her £6 10s., also at her request, for the purpose of bringing her home; but I have not since heard from her, though her sister has written me to say that she left her for Sydney three days after receiving the money. This is to give notice that if she returns and gives a satisfactory account of her absence, she will be welcomed home; and any one found harbouring her after this date will be prosecuted,

During the early evening of the same day, Sunday last, death claimed another highly respected resident of Kiama, in the person of Mrs. Windsor, wife of Mr, Eli Windsor. The deceased lady, who was only 36 years of age, had for the past six weeks been in a very precarious state, being for a day or two previous in a particularly low condition, and succumbed to septicaemia shortly after dusk on the day stated. Profound sympathy is felt for the bereaved husband and five little motherless children.

The funeral took place yesterday afternoon, the remains being interred in the Anglican portion of North Kiama Cemetery The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Wednesday 11 October 1911 p 2

Passed to her well-earned rest on Tuesday night last, Lucy Ann, relict of the late Eli Windsor, whom she survived by tho short space of five months (says the Quirindi Advocate). The deceased lady was one of those fine women who was a helpmate to her husband in every sense of the word. With him she faced the hardships and the trials which were common to the pioneers, and it can be said that in death they were not divided, for she took her life's partner's death so very keenly to heart, that she soon followed, her age at the time of her death being 85 years. Mrs. Windsor' was 'of a kindly, warm-hearted disposition, whose chief joy was in her home and her family, and to her may be applied the lines:

Life 's race well run,
Life's work well done,
Life's crown well won',
Then, comes rest. ,

Her remains were interred beside those of her husband in the Anglican portion of the local cemetery The Scone Advocate (NSW : 1887 - 1954) Tuesday 26 October 1926 p 2

Mrs. Rebecca Winley, relict of the late William Winley, died at the residence of her daughter (Mrs. F. C. Guest) Fairy Meadow, on Saturday last, aged 77 years.

Deceased had been a resident of the South Coast all her life and was held in high esteem by a wide circle of friends.

Her husband, who predeceased her, was at one time captain of the Salvation Army.

Sons left to mourn their loss are Samuel, James and Wesley, while the daughters are Janey, Annie, Alicia. One daughter, Emily and one son Lindsay are deceased.

Deceased was the daughter of the late James and Mrs. Alexander, and was born at Armagh, County Tyree, Ireland. Her parents were among the early settlers of the old David Berry Estate. Some years after her marriage she and her husband entered into Salvation Army work, and they did much of the pioneering work of the Army in this State.

Subsequently they engaged in church work with the Wesleyan Practically all her life Mrs. Winley was a very active Christian worker, helping the sick and those needing spiritual guidance. Failing health in later years prevented her from continuing the work she loved — to do good for others. The large assemblage of relatives and friends who gathered to pay their last respects bore eloquent tribute to the respect and esteem in which she was held.

The remains were interred in the Methodist cemetery, Wollongong, on Monday afternoon. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 25 August 1933 p 16

On the 17 th February, at the Episcopalian Church, Jamberoo, by the Rev. Percy J. Smith, George, only son of Mr Geo. Wood, Jamberoo, to Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Mr James Donnelly, Kiama. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Monday 1 March 1858 p 3

Yesterday (I am now writing on Thursday morning), occurred the very unexpected death of Mrs. George Wood, of this neighbourhood. The immediate cause of death in this case, I understand to have been a combination of scarlet fever and diphtheria: but it was only on Sunday last that Mrs. Wood was obliged to take to her bed. She had, however, previously reduced herself to a very low physical condition by extra work in her domestic concerns, added to the drain upon her strength-the strength of a not very strong person-involved in the suckling of an infant about six months old. An unmarried sister, who customarily resided with Mrs. Wood, had been absent some time for the purpose of nursing a third sister living at Shellharbour, and had her self come back sick: besides which Mrs. Wood's oldest girl, fourteen or fifteen years old, I believe, was also laid up. Mrs. Wood, I understand, had a presentiment that she would not recover. I suppose the state of physical prostration in which, as above mentioned, she found herself, might be productive of such a mental condition.

A few hours before her death, however, which occured before noon yesterday, she was somewhat better than she had previously been, and remarked that the rain was falling in such a way as to do a great deal of good, Dr. Hamilton, I understand, was in attendance. Mrs. Wood's remains were to be buried to-day at the English Church burial ground, Jamberoo. She had not quite completed her fortieth year; was the eldest daughter of Mr. James Donnelly, formerly well known in this district; and leaves a family of six children, I believe, -four sons and two daughters.

The passing of Mrs Mary Wood in her 84th year on Friday afternoon last was heard with widespread regret, as before her accident some six weeks weeks ago she was wonderfully active for her age and as mentally alert, visiting her church regularly and attending to her household duties daily. Keenly interested in town affairs and in helpful ways as was evidenced by her gift of a handsome crocheted quilt donated to the Kiama District Hospital and yet to be won by a successful competitor.

She was the daughter of the late Joseph Pike, who for many years was Mayor of Kiama, with a long service as an Alderman and one of the first members of the Council. Her brother, James, followed in his father's footsteps and had a wonderful record in municipal service too, but would never accept the Mayoral honour, though through many years again and again it was offered to him

The late Mrs Mary Wood was born in the old homestead on Pike's Hill, which was the first store of Kiama. She married Mr George Wood, the eldest son of the late George Wood, also of Kiama, who as one of the local business men, erected the big block of buildings at the junction of Terralong and Shoalhaven Streets, from Woolford's to Fleming's. The first row of shops he built on this site were destroyed in the second big fire Kiama experienced in 1899. Mr Wood's husband was a successful farmer, their first home being at Clover Hill, Kiama.

A terrible tragedy befell the family which took all happiness from her life and it was only an iron will that made her take up the threads and carry on. Older residents of the district remember the Boxing Day of 1893 when her husband and 3 children, two sisters, Miss Charlotte Pike and Mrs Thos Honey, with her brother-in-law, Capt Honey were drowned at the mouth of the Minnamurra River through the boat overturning in the current. She was found far out to sea grasping the seat of the boat, rigid and unconscious mentally that out of all those that left the family picnic so happily a short time before for a row on the river she alone was left alive. A cruel fate had still future agony in store for her, for her eldest daughter who had refused to get in the boat with the party, never seemed to recover from the shock of the happening and when pneumonia attacked her a short time after, she too, passed over to the other side.

So terribly bereft, the mother left the home of her happy married life and came to Kiama to live, and for some 25 years had occupied the cottage in Minnamurra Street where she died.

During the war the late Mrs Wood gave considerable practical help to both Red Cross and War Chest funds with personal service in sewing and in any avenue of help open to her. She has been a consistent supported of the Kiama District Hospital and in a number of quiet charitable ways has used her means in a good cause.

Perhaps the greatest interest left to Mrs Wood was that of her Church. While heath was hers she never missed a service on the Sunday or during the week, wet or fine, and her financial help was never lacking.

Nephews and nieces she had with their children descendants of her brother, the late Mr. James Pike, the late Mrs Thos. Honey and the late Mrs. Wilson, wife of Capt. Wilson, of Shellharbour. So she passes to the other side, to meet loved ones gone before, the loveliness of her life at an end. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon and was attended by a large and representative gathering who had come to pay a last tribute of respect and esteem to a beloved friend and follow citizen….

The widow of the late Rev. Henry Woodhouse, passed away on Friday, 7th inst., after a period of painful illness. She, together with her husband, entered earnestly into the work of all their circuits, and these owe much to her simple and strong piety, and to her self-denying labours. She lived in later years with her son at Chatswood and at Croydon Park, and up to the measure of her strength, took an active interest in the worship and work of these circuits. She was a member of the recently formed Ministers' Wives' and Widows' Association , and was proud to be thus linked up with those of the old and passing generation of parsonage ladies, and also with those younger ones who have entered into their labours. She died in her 82nd year, and is survived by six sons and one daughter. Two sons are in the ministry, viz., Revs'. W. M. Woodhouse (Roseville), and C. A. S. Woodhouse (Orange).

Margaret Harris v Ann Woods. - No appearance by either party. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 22 November 1872 p 2

Ann Woods appeared in custody, she having been arrested by Constable Parkinson, by virtue of a warrant, to answer a charge of having made use of obscene language at Bulli, more than two years ago, namely, in November, 1872. It appeared the prisoner had been served with a summons for the offence, but had left the district in the meanwhile, thus causing the issue of a warrant for her apprehension. It was not until a few days ago, however, that she returned to Bulli, after which it appears Constable Parkinson lost no time before he 'interviewed' her, presenting her at the same time with his ' card' in the shape of the warrant from 1872.

Prisoner pleaded guilty to the charge, remarking that she was very sorry for having made use of the language complained of.

Fined 10s and 7s lOd costs (which she said she was unable to pay), or an alternative of four days in gaol. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 5 January 1875 p 2

By the death of Mrs. Caroline Woods of Stokes Lane, Bulli, another link with the early days of the coast has been severed. Born at Wollongong 83 years ago, the late Mrs. Woods had been a resident of the district all her life. She was married in Wollongong and shortly afterwards left to take up her residence at Old Bulli. Later she moved to Bulli, and about six months ago took up residence with her son, Harry in Stokes' Lane. Her husband, Thomas Woods, died about three years ago.

They were a well known couple, both being held in the highest esteem. Mrs. Woods did not take an active interest in the public life of the community, contenting herself with working for her family, She was an ideal mother and neighbor -and -the large and representative attendance at the funeral yesterday afternoon was a fitting tribute to her sterling worth.

There were nine sons, eight of whom survive, Messrs Charlie, Arthur, Jack, Lal, William, Dave, Harry, and Jim. One son, Joe, was killed some years ago on the North Coast. There, are thirty grandchildren, also a number of great grand children. She had been ailing , for the past eight or nine months, and the end came as a happy release. The funeral left her son's residence, -Stokes, Lane, yesterday afternoon for the general cemetery. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Thursday 24 March 1932 p 7

On Saturday last the death occurred of Mrs. Frances Maria Woods, wife of Mr. John McBrien Woods, who passed away rather unexpectedly in Bulli Hospital. Mrs. Woods had been a patient sufferer for a couple of years, experiencing a rather severe turn about a year ago, and her health had been failing ever since. Last Thursday afternoon her condition was such that it was found necessary to remove her to Bulli Hospital.

The body was taken to the well known family home in Rixon's Pass, whence the funeral moved at 4 p.m. last Sunday, and a large concourse of representatives of old families of the Illawarra district attended, the coffin being first taken into the Catholic Church at Corrimal, and afterwards carried across to the cemetery opposite by six sons, which had once been the expressed wish of deceased, Rev. Father, O'Farrell officiating in the church and at the graveside, and there were many beautiful wreaths.

The late Mrs. Woods was 63 years of age, being the second youngest daughter of late James and Maria Leeper, a well-known couple of former years. She was born at Dapto. Her marriage took place at Bulli over 40 years ago to a Wollongong native and a member of another well-known Illawarra family. Mr. and Mrs. Woods resided in Wollongong for about ten years and the remainder of their married life has been spent in the Rixon's Pass district, where they reared a large and highly respected family of eleven sons and one daughter. The late Mrs. Woods was of quiet and reserved type, with a life devoted fondly to her husband and family, and she was of very kind nature. Many will miss her friendship, but the separation is an extremely hard blow to the husband and to the grown-up family, all of whom have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends.

Of the family of twelve, two sons are deceased, John (then 21) passing away at home 17 years ago, and Francis (then 26) being accidentally killed while engaged on the construction of the Sydney “Sun” building ten years ago. The sons remaining, in order of age, are - Charles (Bulli), Arthur (Corrimal), Vincent (Bellambi), Osmund (Woonona), Septimus (Russell Vale), Ronald (Port Kembla), Clement (at home), Kevin (Queanbeyan), Herbert (at home). The daughter is Maria (Mrs. E. Taylor, Russell Vale).

Messrs. A. O. Leeper (Wollongong) and J. Leeper (South Australia) are brothers of deceased, and Mesdames J. Byron (Wollongong), J. Boland (Woonona) and T. Noonan (Queensland) are sisters. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 7 October 1938 p 12

He was married on April l8th, 1870, at the Sacred Heart Church, Sydney, to Miss Mary Ann McBrien, of Woonona, and they went to reside at Woonona. The late Mr.Wood resided at Wollongong for many years, and was an alderman of the Municipality, doing good work as chairman of the Works Committee. In 1890 the death occurred of his wife The issue of the marriage was six sons and three daughters. One son predeceased his father, and the surviving members of the family are: — Mr. John Woods (Woonona), Mr. Arthur Woods (Sydney), Mr. Edward Palmer Woods (America), Mr. Geo.

The death of Mrs. Theresa Jane Woods, aged 81 years, mother of Mr. Wally Woods, of Fairfield, occurred list Tuesday, September 9, at her residence, “Hilltop Farm,” Bulli. Despite her advanced age, she had enjoyed good health up to a few weeks prior to her demise.

She was born in Thirroul and was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Ballantyne, who were amongst the earlier pioneers of the district. She was married in Wollongong to the late Mr. John Woods, who predeceased her by some years. Mr. Woods was working at Old Bulli at the time of the explosion, but was, fortunately, working in another section to that in which the explosion occurred. Mrs. Woods, with other women, rendered much assistance at the time of the explosion, by taking refreshments to those engaged in trying to get the unfortunate miners out. Although of a quiet, retiring nature, she was always ready to assist anyone in trouble. She possessed a very clear recollection of early events on the South Coast, and often recalled that when going to school at Austinmer Public School, incidentally one of the oldest public schools on the South Coast, she and other children often had to make detours into the bush, to avoid the numerous blacks who were camped round the beaches. There were no made roads leading towards the school, and the children had only a rough track on which to walk. Only three weeks ago the late Mrs. Woods celebrated her 83rd birthday, and on that occasion practically every member of her family was present at the family reunion and birthday party.

She is survived by seven sons and three daughters, twenty-one grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. One daughter, Theresa, died some years ago.

The members of the family are: Thomas (Bulli), Martha (Mrs. E. Hewitt, Sutherland), Charles (Thirroul). John (Thirroul), Rachel (Mrs. J. Black. Bulli), Fred (Bulli), George (Bulli Walter (Fairfield), David (Bulli). Alice (Mrs. Perry, Bulli). One brother James Ballantyne, also survives her, and he resides in the Newcastle district.

The funeral moved to the Bulli Church of England Cemetery on Thursday afternoon. The Biz (Fairfield, NSW : 1928 - 1972) Thursday 18 September 1941 p 7

On the 1st March, at his residence. Cedar Grove, Jamberoo, Mr. Thomas Wright, sen., aged 71 years, a native of London, England. Empire (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1875) Friday 7 March 1873 p 1

the death of Mr John Wright, who, though not very far advanced in years,–his age was fifty-three, might be properly considered as one of the oldest residents of the neighbourhood, as there were very few whose retrospect would reach farther than his: He was not exactly a native of the colony, but was brought hither when very young, with several brothers and sisters.

His father, Mr, Thomas Wright, died two Or three years ego, I think, His mother, subject to the infirmities of advanced age, is yet living at the house of her son~in-law, Mr. Samuel Vidler, where her son, the subject of the present notice, expired on Monday week last,. The immediate cause of the death of deceased was cancer in the lower jaw, the operation of which became serious, I believe, about twelve months ago, and latterly caused him much severe suffering. Mr, Wright was buried the day after his death at the Church of England burial ground, Jamberoo. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Friday 8 December 1876 p 2

The lapse of time, the busy cycling years.
Renew my poignant grief, calls forth my tears,
For him who perished bravely at his toil,
And now lies resting 'neath the churchyard soil.
Even now I feel 'tis hard to give thee up,
To miss thy presence, and drink this bitter cup;
To rend thy name engraved in marble cold
Cut deeper still within in days of old.
The bond is severed that once bound our hearts
And destinies together. Friend often parts
With friend, in hope of meeting soon again;
That hope is dead in me, not so the pain.
Hope dead ! ah no. There is another place
Where parting is unknown, where kindred meet;
Yes, there we hope again our friends to greet.
But why 0 ruthless Death! on that eventful day
Didst thou such numbers of thy victims slay
Was it the will of heaven that I should feel
Into my peaceful home the keenest sorrow steal ?
Perish the thought t was not so designed to be,
The why and wherefore is not clear to see.
Alas I we can descry, though but in part,
Evil is wrought for want of thought and heart.
Forgive my rebel will, my murmuring, and fear;
The one who was most precious, strong, and dear
To me, was rudely torn from my embrace,
-Yet I will nobly try my lot to face.
Cherishing his words, copying his deeds,
Planting with choice flowers, plucking up the weeds,
Thinking of him kindly, burying all wrong,
Gratefully receiving help from old and young.
Be this my life work, in any place or sphere,
All he would have me be, earnest and sincere;
True, pure, and good — the keystone of the arch
Never to forget — the twenty-third of March.

Death of Maria Wynn

There passed away on Friday, at her son's residence, at Banksia, MrsW. H. Wynn (up to a few years ago one of the oldest residents of Woonona and Bulli). With her husband and six children, Mrs. Wynn arrived at Newtown (now Thirroul) 62 years ago. At that period Thirroul consisted of about 26 to 20 houses and to get there from Sydney one had to travel either by steamer to Wollongong or by Waterworth’s Coach via Campbelltown. Old Bulli at that time was the business centre, consisting of several stores and four hotels. Later the family moved to Woonona which consisted of one hotel, Collins' butcher's shop, the post-office stores (conducted by the late Edward Ramsay), police station and about a dozen residences. Campbell's Estate, comprising all that property from the top of the hill down the main street to Nicholson's Lane, was subdivided and Mr. W. H. Wynn secured two allotments running through from Campbell street to Nicholson's lane, and on the entrance from Campbell street built a bakehouse (known now as Kemister's) and started business.

Mrs. Wynn's first great loss was through the Bulli disaster, when she lost her eldest son, John Thomas; later she received another great shock m the sudden death of her eldest daughter, Mrs. Albert Cavill, Campbell street, Woonona.

Mrs. Wynn was a loving and devoted wife, a happy, kind and sympathising mother, seeking only to make her family a happy one, and those visiting her home were well acquainted with the harmony that prevailed.

Mrs. Wynn was the mother of 13 children, 7 of whom survive her; at her death she was 81 years of age.

Deceased was of a retiring nature, always attended her church and in the early period of her residence in this district will be remembered for her kindly assistance in sickness or trouble.

The funeral left the residence at 2.30 last Saturday for Rookwood. Her husband, Mr. W. H. Wynn, who survives to mourn his; wife, is well known here not only in the baking business but was one of the finest violinists of 'the district in -addition to the father, there is a family of seven, namely George (Temora), William (Russel St., Woonona) , Lillian (late of Corrimal) Marrickville, Florrie (Banksia) Maude (Marrickville), Frank: (Brisbane) , Cecil (Banksia.)
